MIRAGE F1 AZ SERIAL 235

Dubbed as the "world's fastest dairy truck" due to her colour scheme, this aircraft was used as an avionics technology demonstrator that included systems testing of a completely locally developed avionics suite.

 New systems that were developed and tested include an advanced Global Positioning System (GPS), new technology mission computers with in-flight update abilities, an entire glass cockpit and new Electronic Warfare (EW) sensors.  The South African Air Force did not select the avionics upgrade for it's existing mirage F1 fleet as the fleet was about to be retired from service.  The contactor for the new systems, ATE, however successfully exported this avionics suite when the Spanish Air Force upgraded all their Mirage F1 fleet with the South African developed avionics suite.  The aircraft was delivered to the SAAF Museum during 2005.
